Adult Captain America Halloween Cosplay Costume DIY

This is probably one of the most patriotic costumes available. This is partially due to the obvious patriotism displayed in the classic red, white, and blue costume. The flag motif and shield help to tell the story of  Captain America.

For those who don't know the story of Captain America, this superhero first became popular during the 1940's as a comic book character. The main character is Steve Rogers. Steve is the classic story of a poor Irish immigrant who desired to fight for America during WWII. A secret government experiment turned him into a soldier with super-human strength known as  Captain America. Captain America fought the axis powers during WWII.

However, the character stayed popular, and the comic book continued through the next decade. After the war, Captain America began to fight America's communism. This was the country's new enemy in the 1950's. The hero continued to stay relevant to modern culture. Even current events such as Watergate made their way into the comic.

Eventually, the character also became a member of the Avengers. In the last several years, the character has remained popular and relevant with several Marvel movies topping the box office. It is not hard to see why this costume is one of the most patriotic Halloween costumes, and a perfect cosplay patriotic movie costume.
